The Buddha Bowl

The Buddha Bowl />
The Buddha bowl, wellness bowl, power bowl. What ever you like to call it you know its packed full of life giving nutrients and a pretty good "fad" if you ask me. Isn't it interesting when a whole food meal is named a fad. Everyone is that confused about what is best to eat today, what is missing is that what is good for YOU to eat is as individual to you as your fingerprint. The fad of the Buddha bowl is thought to go back to when Buddha collected donations in the form of food in his bowl he carried with him through the villages, not so much a fad at all i don't think, just a mish mash of what would have been whole grains, root vegetables, preserves and fresh produce. The great thing about this magical bowl is that you can customize it to what ever you know to be good for YOUR body. read more
